    How great would it be if HP surprised us with a dual screen phone. What percentage do you guys think that it would be dual screen. I wanna keep hope so im saying 5%

    it would make the phone thicker. What purpose would the second screen serve?

    I'm not sure how nice a duel screen phone would be. I could see a netbook/tablet mix, but you'd think it'd be too bulky to be used as a phone or too small to be used for anything else.

    Actually, the TI OMAP4 specs support up to 3 screens simultaneously.

    Here is the post I made about this a couple of moths ago, with a link to the TI video.

    Good grief - the screens supported by the OMAP4 aren't intended to all be in the device.

    Yes, they are, in fact, TI themselves developed a device with 2 screens on it to test it.. look at that video to see it!



    This is part of why the TI OMAP processors are so preferable to other solutions... low power, high performance.

    Landscape slider phone...but instead of a keyboard underneath, it'll have a screen. I like the idea, it'll function like a regular keyboard, most of the time, and just think of all the cool things you could do as far as extending apps onto the screen.

    I also LOVE the idea of putting something like Samsung's mini-OLED screen under the gesture area, so you're doing the gestures on that cool little OLED screen.

    - giant quik apps launch area
    - touch dialer
    - haptic keyboard

    It would be innovative 'form factor' we keep hearing about

    may use a little batt, but could keep it extra thin, cheaper, more reliable

    Like I said - not intended to support a three-screen device. Intended to drive at least one external monitor. Dual screen devices have been around for years.

    And, yes, they CAN support all 3 on one device, but can ALSO support 2 on and 1 off.

    Its all in the video.
